Trailer

A Thai teen horror movie… Why would you watch that…? Indeed…

It’s not actually that much of a horror movie, more a drama pretending to be a horror movie and it has a clear if simple concept at the heart of it. Maybe there is also a language issue for me as I found it very difficult to feel any kind of connection with any of the characters so you remain a distant observer and you never get into the story or the characters.

When it tries to pass over from drama to horror it isn’t really scary enough at all, so it left me feeling this movie missed focus: it is being marketed as a horror movie but it is not nearly scary enough for that, but it definitely is not nearly interesting enough to be considered a half-decent (teen) drama either.

But to be fair: I did watch it till the end, and I didn’t absolutely hate it; it is just shallow, uninteresting, and not scary. So yeah, it misses an all points. Not worth your time.

 

  • Does it have a hook? Nope.
  • Is it entertaining? Some bits.
  • Should you watch it? No.
